Infant Toddler Lead Teacher Biography

Maryann August 2013

My name is Maryann and once I entered the Cadet Teacher Academy Program in high school I knew that my future would be in the education field. I graduated from Western Michigan University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and Early Childhood Education. I have had many opportunities to work with children; such as, being an assistant coach for varsity basketball, head coach for middle school basketball, and I also had the opportunity to work with migrant children and their families for five years. I am very happy to be able to work with children every day and have a positive influence on their lives.
